I was just goofing off online this evening and came across this picture, allegedly of some dude's "new setup."

Damnnn.

That's just showing how much money can be spent. No acoustic treatments to the walls and highly reflective floors is indicative of crappy sound from premium speakers and electronics.

Of course I haven't heard it and am just being jealously prejudging because I can't buy it.

Saw and heard the 704 S2s in Best Buy yesterday. I was surprised by their smallish size compared to my older 684 S1s. The photos i've seen of them online make them seem bigger, or is that just me? Anyways, they sound awesome! They do also depend on a good subwoofer heavily. Just my opinions. They did have a pair of CM8 S2s for $1000. VERY tempting for me since my 684 S1s will eventually need a replacing. Couldn't do it though. My 684s still sound great and with twins on the way - I just couldn't justify the purchase even at that great price!

CM6 S2 vs CM9 S2

I have the opportunity....during this magnolia clearance to buy the CM6's or the CM9's for within $50 of the same price per pair

No brainer to go with CM9's?

In what I plan to use them for I could use a bookshelf or a tower

Have you listened to them both? I think the CM6's sound better, assuming that you are using them in conjunction with a sub. The tweeter on top, which you only get on the 6 and the 10, makes a big difference IMO.

I guess all I have to say about that is:

Damn. It's like going to a concert and seeing a wall of Marshall full stacks. Except, most of those are for show and not all actual speaker cabs.

I have not listened to them both..per se

Meaning not back to back...which I think is important to listen to them in the same room with the source material

So I guess what you are saying is there is more bass in the CM9 but other than that the CM6 sounds better?

Can I assume you own them both?

Of those two I'd take the CM9. I believe inclusion of the FST midrange driver is of more value than relocating what is essentially the same tweeter to the top of the cabinet.

No. I own neither. Several months ago I was shopping for speakers and asked to listen to CM9s at Magnolia. They sounded good, but not nearly as good as CM10s. The salesman suggested I listen to the CM6s for comparison, and I thought they sounded much better at the top than the CM9s, and more like the CM10s. If I were buying them for use as a stereo pair with no sub, I would buy the CM9s. If I were buying them for use as surrounds and/or in conjunction with a sub, I would buy the CM6s. But that's just me. Anyway, you should listen to them side by side if you can.

I ended up going home and then going big. Bought a used pair of 804 D2's.

Question Amp Recommendation?

Greetings all,

I'm new to AVS, but looking for recommendations or suggestions on my theater set up. The primary use is for movies. My equipment is a Marantz SR7011, CM10 S2's , HTM61 and 664's with a Klipsch 10' sub. This is not in a dedicated (4 wall) theater room, just a basement. I'm aware that acoustics will dramatically impact the sound performance. We do have carpet and I've made an acoustic treatment to place on one side wall. The system is essentially set in the corner of an "L" shape room. I'd like to make sure I have enough power or if I should invest in acoustics instead?

Thank you in advance for your help!

That Klipsch 10" sub if far and away the weakest part of your system. Concentrate on upgrading that as a priority.
